    Call of Duty Elite launched last fall to coincide with the rollout of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, the fastest-selling entertainment product of all time. Elite is the online counterpart to MW3, offering stats tracking, in-game competitions, game strategies and more. The service had some rough moments at launch, but most parts of Elite are up and running now.


    Chacko Sonny, head of Beachhead Studio -- the Activision Blizzard division in charge of Elite -- explained that the app includes four main components, mirroring most of the major features from the Elite website:
    Sonny told MacRumors that with Elite available on three very different platforms -- console, the web, and now the iPhone -- the difference in form factor between the interfaces was important: "it's smaller from an interface standpoint. We didn't want to shoehorn the website or console experience onto a smartphone." Beachhead's designers made sure the Elite app felt native to the iPhone.

    Further, Sonny emphasized that the Elite iPhone app is a 1.0 release and that the service will progress both on the console, the web, and the mobile apps.
    The app will be free, and will be available to all Call of Duty Elite users -- there is a premium Elite membership available that includes free downloadable content and some other goodies, but that doesn't affect the mobile app -- though there is no sign-up from the app itself. Users must enroll via the website or the Elite app on either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 first. The Call of Duty Elite app only works when connected to the Internet via 3G or Wi-Fi.


    Call of Duty Elite for iPhone launches tomorrow, Tuesday the 10th, on the App Store. An iPad version is promised "shortly thereafter".

    Update: Call of Duty ELITE [App Store] is now available.

    Haven't played call of duty in years but I remember loving it on the 360. I don't need a PS3 or 360 to use this on my iPhone, right? Might as well give it a try tomorrow

    Unless I'm missing the point completely, it is useless to you unless you play MW3 already on a console (the above suggests that you don't). And as others have alluded to I think you need an extra membership as well.

    You do need to have the game on a console, but you don't need an extra paid membership. The Elite Premium is only for DLC and a few other minor perks.

    One does have to sign up at, but that's free.

    Oh. I assumed you don't since the article says you can sign up on the website.

    What would be sick is the ability to spectate games, and control the drones while in game. That would really take it to a new level

    Hopefully this app won't suck as bad as the website does. My guess is that it probably will. It probably won't be useable until version 2.0. That said, I'm curious to try it out :D

    What I really, really, really want to see is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 hitting the Mac App Store.

    Come on Aspyr / Activision / Infinity Ward.

    finally, the app was suppose to be out over 2 months ago. The app only for people that play call of duty modern warfare 3 on xbox or PS3. it allows you to see your stats along with friends. It also allow you to change your class loadout right from the iphone/ipad.

    Next question is...when will EA finally release Battlelog for iPhone?

    Many, many BF3 players are awaiting that release...

    Thats your K/D ratio. green meaning up from the last game and red is down from the last game.
